  • TessMark fails to launch.
    put a copy of atig6pxx.dll e.g. from Cat11.1.a into Tessmark’s application folder

  • Weird, TessMark works fine on my system: HD 6950 + Cat 11.2.

  • OK,forget my posts.
    It worked after rebooting the computer.
    The Catalyst installer fooled me by not asking for a reboot.

    and old opengl is still broken since Cat 10.4. Practically all Q2-Q3 engine games is broken. Quake II – III, Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Jedi Knight II and Jedi Academy, Soldier of Fortune etc dont work on Catalysts higher than Cat 10.4

    but you say about tesselation which is used… where?

  • Korvin77

    With Cat 11.2 + AI on all OpenGL games work good now.

    Hi, this drivers CAtalyst 11.2 use “CUDA” in AMD ???

  • @Frank: GPU Caps Viewer display in the first panel the OpenCL information of the first OpenCL platform and in my system, the first CL platform is NVIDIA one. I just published a test that uses all OpenCL platforms (NVIDIA, AMD and Intel) with GPU Caps Viewer: (Test) OpenCL Support Gets Better and Better.

    Korvin77 – Catalyst AI is used to detect older software and implement OGL Extension list restriction to run them correctly. If you turn it off those games may not work. However even with AI turned ON JK:JA works for me only if I change executable name to quake3.exe
    @Frank – I believe JeGX has tandem of AMD and NV cards, one for rendering and one for CUDA/PhysX testing.

  • Correct, I have a Radeon HD 6950 (primary card) and a GeForce GT 240 (secondary card).
